Regarding: Interactive Brokers (IB) QFX file import

Question:
I'm trying to import my 2011 qfx monthly IB files and Tapro would just crash on my Windows 7 x64 pc. It keeps doing this no matter what qfx I use. I'm currently running v 3.7.00.11.03.14.

Heres whats tested:
same qfx file import on my current tapro DB crashes.
same qfx file import on a new DB and account imports fine.

Answer:
The issue is with the new parser in TAPro and the version of the file. We attempted to extract commission and fee calculations from the file in cases where it is not coded as expected. At present the work around it to user a different parser for the import. This is accomplished by setting up an account and choosing the broker name "Other" - at the end of the list of Financial Institutions.
